How does escrow work for SaaS?
Our arrangements consist of 3 parts: the agreement, verification and the deposit.
First we determine the right agreement, a process that must be done with care as it is the legal basis of the whole arrangement.
SaaS applications are continuously being developed, so the source code, application and data often have to be deposited.
After approval, our experts thoroughly verify the data that goes into the depot.
Is that over? Then measures will also be taken to keep the application available in the short term.
That process, including data updates, is automated so that a platform is always available. An area in which we lead the way as an escrow agent.
We do this by making agreements and taking measures so that the application remains available. For example, we take over the hosting or transfer the hosting contracts to the user.
The material is stored dually at various Dutch locations – both online and offline. Dual means it never comes together. These locations are of course secured according to the strictest standards.
In the meantime, you will receive 24/7 online status insight via My Escrow. The deposit remains up-to-date: this is an active escrow arrangement in which the data is regularly updated. Something that is made easy by our smart automation.
